Ohio state trooper’s dashcam captures him slamming into back of truck at high speed on empty highway: 25-year-old officer is miraculously pulled ALIVE from mangled wreckage

An Ohio state trooper is recovering at home after slamming his cruiser into the back of a semi-truck on an empty highway earlier this month. Jarid Fitzpatrick, 25, was speeding westbound down Interstate 70 east of Columbus on December 15 at around 3.13am. Dash cam footage shows him barreling down a highway ramp and overtaking a truck before meeting the back of a different truck without pause. It is unclear why Fitzpatrick, who did not appear to be on a call at the time of the incident, didn’t slow down. The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the incident while the trooper recovers. The agency says the truck’s rear impact guard, which came off during the accident, may have saved their trooper’s life, according to WSYX in Columbus. Photos from the scene show the front side of Fitzpatrick’s cruiser completely mangled as it was retrieved from underneath the truck, which had to be lifted up in order to free the vehicle.
